Windows 7: how can I get taskbar to remember where an application was moved?

how can I get taskbar to remember where an application was moved?

I don't want to pin anything. Without pinning, can windows remember where I dragged an application on my task bar through a setting or anything? I like to have my frequently used programs available near the start button. I'm always dragging them over there after I open them. But I don't like losing the task bar real estate to pinned icons.

Thanks

I made a folder and added all my most common shortcuts (anywhere). Then right click taskbar, new toolbar, select made folder, and you now have a "quicklaunch" type area you can drag and minimize both ways.

Hello and welcome franki have a look at this it might suit what you need although it still puts them on the taskbar (which you can always have hidden anyway I do)

Bins < it cost a minimal amount but is good.
